Drool Drool Drool......

  I have been working on my Ebay and Etsy shops recently listing some amazing vintage purses and sweaters. The work put into them never ceases to amaze me! The quality just can't be compared to anything manufactured nowadays. Some of these bags have to be 40 plus years old and not a bead missing nor anything loose. Hinges still work and hardware is intact! The only problem I have found with the clothing is improper storing of the items which has nothing to do with the person who made them.
  I have to piggy back off my dear friend who blogs Sweet Lavender Bake Shoppe and rave about the level of skill and absolutely wonderful, beautiful, artistic, amazing items that are made by the people on Etsy!!!! Browse around and see for yourself. It won't take but a few seconds to see the creativity that overflows throughout the entire website. 
   I do truly believe that when the Lord says he created us in His image it included His creativity as well. Just look around the planet for a minute and you can see the magnitude of His artistry. It is so evident that we all share that ability in some way or another. If you haven't discovered your artistic gifts yet I encourage you to take some time to peruse the Etsy website or any pictorial (Pinterest is another) and see what moves you. What do you love? What do you see that inspires you? Moves you to think.."I could do that" or "I want to try that" If you think you have no talent I challenge your thinking! Think large and be open to trying things- you have something you are good at- it's a God-given attribute. 
   There is nothing so wonderful a feeling as creating something- writing a poem, a story, a song, painting, embroidery, sewing, yarn arts, woodworking, metal art, jewelry, card making etc etc etc..We are made to create! 
AND we are made to marvel at creations!! Take time for both
